Stacy Quinn, MSW, LICSW
Hello! I believe that participating in therapy takes bravery, humility, and strength and I applaud you for taking the first step towards personal growth and healing. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of St. Thomas. I have over fifteen years of experience working with individuals struggling with mental health challenges in a variety of settings including schools, day treatment, residential, and inpatient hospitalization. I enjoy working with young adults, adults, and couples seeking to improve relationships, process life transitions, and increase personal alignment. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children while being active outside, tackling home improvement projects, and watching any reality dating show I can find!
How I Work
My clients say I am empathetic, down to earth, and help them feel at ease through a non-judgmental and welcoming approach. No feeling is too big, conflict too challenging, or issue too “shameful” to discuss in our time together. My treatment approach is eclectic with an emphasis on self compassion, identifying cognitive distortions, and strengthening communication and distress tolerance skills. While I take our time together seriously, I also recognize the importance of incorporating humor, as appropriate, so don’t be surprised if we have some fun too!
What Sets Me Apart As a Therapist?
As a child, my parents always told me I should be a detective or an engineer because I have a knack for quickly assessing situations, am good at seeing things from multiple perspectives, and am skilled at finding innovative ways to solve problems. I use these natural strengths as a therapist to collaborate and encourage my clients to gain insight and brainstorm strategies to increase fulfillment in their lives.
